    A nearly perfect issue of an already powerful series. If it isnt already immensely clear, I am extremely happy to have Carmen Carnero on board! Read Full Review

    Even without all of that long-term X-Men history in your head, X-Men Red is an exciting, relevant, high-concept, and epic superhero adventure. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jul 18, 2018

    If you aren't the sort of person who normally enjoys X-Men, you should give X-Men: Red a try. Between the amazing artwork by Carmen Carnero and a story by Tom Taylor that redefines the X-Men for the 21st century, this is a must-read! Read Full Review

    X-MEN RED #6 isn't the most exciting issue in the series so far, but it does feature a few pivotal points. While I would've liked to see a little more action, Taylor's organized storytelling and Carnero's sensational art work makes this issue, overall, fairly successful. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Connor Christiansen Jul 19, 2018

    With emphasis placed on it's unsettling villain and heroic lead plus a hint of sassy, adolescent humor from Honey Badger, X-Men Red #6 is a wonderful read even if it doesn't move the plot forward much. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 24, 2018

    This was a fun issue, and X-Men: Red continues to be the best X-book Marvel is putting out right now. That may change with the announcements from SDCC, but this is an engaging story and the art has been fantastic. Taylor is a masterful storyteller, and while I would've maybe liked a little more action or more plot movement, he always makes sure things pay off in the end. He has earned my trust, which is frankly more than I can say for most writers! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 21, 2018

    X-Men: Red #6 once more shows this to be the best X-Men book on the stands at this moment. The balance of plot, character, and humor is compelling, and Carnero and Beredo make sure that the book continues to be gorgeous. This one earns a strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 18, 2018

    X-Men: Red #6 did not disappoint one bit. X-Men are supposed to fix problems, not slap a banda-aid on it and move to the next one. This team is what you get when the dream is fought for correctly. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Jul 20, 2018

    I just have to say it. If I wanted to introduce someone to the X-Men in 2018 it would be X-Men: Red. X-Men Red #6 by Tom Taylor and Carmen Carnero came out this week and I don't think I've ever read a story as analogous to the original themes of hatred and acceptance through such a modern lens. This issue finally has our team leader, the newly resurrected Jean Grey, confronting Cassandra Nova. Professor X's twin sister, I remember just how terrifying a psychic can be from New X-Men forever ago. Dedicated to wiping out all mutants and using people's existing fear and anxiety of the unknown to do it, Nova provides a dramatic counterweight to Jean Grey's quest to win over hearts and minds across the globe.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 20, 2018

    Carmen Carnero's art is amazing. There is a great level of detail in most of the panels and the details in the facial expressions really go a long way towards depicting the emotion of the moments. There is a lot to ingest visually with some great panels that work well with the story to move the action forward. Read Full Review
